Have it read for codes, even if the check engine light is NOT on the computer will have stored information and codes. Discount auto stores will read codes for no fee. write them down.

if u floor it and the rpms rise and all you do is crawl along that is a sign of the transmission is going if you floor it and your rpms don't redline your tps or throttle position sensor probably went out therefore the car isn't regulating your speed like it should.
